Temtem Guides:

TVs are extremely important in the meta of Temtem as they dictate how well a Temtem excels in terms of its stats. They’re a behind-the-scene mechanic that players concerned with competitive battles will need to learn and understand as soon as possible. For players less concerned with that, TVs aren’t all that important.

Guide to TVs


Temtem doesn’t really explain what Temtems are or how they work. Fortunately for you, this guide does.

Here’s How TVs Work

TV stands for Training Value and they’re similar to EVs of Pokemon fame. They are stat boosts that sit on top of your standard stats. You can only have 500 for a single stat like HP or Speed but only a grand total of 1000 across all seven stats (HP, Stamina, Speed, Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense). Each species of Temtem yields a different TV once it’s defeated.

Each Temtem you defeat yields a TV value. You can gain up to 500 TV for a single stat like HP or ATK and a maximum of 1000 TVs across all stats for a single Temtem. If you want to raise your Temtem’s ATK TV, you’d focus on defeating Temtem that yield ATK TVs. Our Tempedia can tell you what each Temtem in the game yields in terms of TV.

TVs start at zero and increase based on which Temtem you defeat. The formula is currently not known for determining exactly how many TVs are needed to increase a stat by a point, but theoretically, X amount of Y TVs increase your Y stat by a single point.

Hypothetical example: It takes 5 ATK TVs to increase your Temtem’s attack by 1. So, to increase your Temtem’s attack by a single point, you would need to defeat enough Temtem to earn 5 ATK TVs.

TVs can help make up some ground on lower SVs and subsequent base stats and they can bring an already great Temtem’s stats to new heights.

How TVs Are Different From SVs

To put things into Pokemon terms, SVs are the IVs of Temtem while TVs are the EVs. If you haven’t played Pokemon or aren’t familiar with those terms in Pokemon, that won’t help you all that much but this guide will. Let’s break it down.

SVs go from 1 to 50 and the SV number associated with each stat (think HP, STA, SPD, etc) tells you how high or low that stat is. A Temtem with a 50 SV (the max) for HP will have the maximum base HP possible for that Temtem. SVs cannot be manipulated by the player. A Temtem’s SV will always be its SV for whichever stat you’re looking at.

So what you’d ideally want in a Temtem is a Temtem with 50 SVs in each category of stats. This would mean the Temtem has perfect base value stats. A Temtem with a 1 SV for all of its stats, on the other hand, would be a Temtem with the lowest possible base value stats.

If you want a strong attack Temtem, you’ll want a Temtem with 50 SVs for attack or at least close to 50, and so on.
